Windows 7: Microsoft: Snow Leopard Can't Roar

Microsoft: Snow Leopard Can't Roar

Apple has long accused Microsoft openly that it is copying its Mac OS X operating system with Windows releases. The Redmond company countered on the same note, indicating that there are features on OS X inspired by Windows. In this escalating face-off, Microsoft managed a new move over its rival in Cupertino. It paraded its own breed of “snow leopard,” this time the real thing, not just the codename for the next version of Apple's operating system. As you can see from the image on the left, Microsoft featured a snow leopard as a background for its search engine, Live Search.

Windows 7 x64 / Same

I don't get why anyone is so hard core for either company. I use Windows because it is the most supported OS (more programs run on it) and it is generally easy to use.

I tinker with Linux out of curiosity and believe it has a brighter future than Mac OS.

Mac OS just doesn't do it for me.

I don't really favor one company over the other: My PC's are Windows and I use an iPod for my music enjoyment.

Windows 7

Lol... There's still room for improvement in creativity. Apple and Microsoft will never get along. One way to be creative is to tell both these companies to stop their turf war and just get along or at least ask them to not bring this nonsense to their customer's doorstop cause it gets just annoying though exciting and enjoyable to read this kinda stuff.
